First up is a pretty easy QACAS (don't you just love Darnell's acronyms?). This one will head off to Muse, one of my favorite places to play, and also to the Color Throwdown, with a great palette. Check out Vicki's inspiration card:
And as it happens, Color Throwdown has this lovely winter scene:
My take looks like this...
I used a cut file from Silhouette and cut the main image with Michaels white cardstock.Only added three things...One sentiment from W Plus9 with Versafine ink, and two (though it's hard to see) sequins. There's a black one on top of the larger red one. I like the way this turned out, and I think it has Vicki's flavor to it.
Next up is a card for Lawnscaping Challenge 97. The theme is winter with a wonderful inspiration photo with tons of ideas. I'm also popping this into Simon Says Stamp where we're to use something new. And while I'm at it, I think this one will head over to Darnell's NBUS challenge as well!
And here's my card:
My NBUS on this is the LF polka dot paper. I've been hoarding it...so I broke it out today and it was just the ticket. A scrap of black and the light light aqua, as well as the Michaels white. I die cut the tree with a MB die. I added a couple of scraps of white glitter paper die cut with a LF die to look like snowbanks. A bunch of sequins, and if you look closely you'll see a few splotches of yellow directly on the blue panel. I hoped to give it a little depth and mimic the bokeh effect from the top row middle panel of the inspiration photo. The LF sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink. And there you have it. Thanks for hanging in there with me on this rather long post. Happy dances everyone!
